The issues of using seismic pads to protect buildings and structures from bulk seismic P and S waves are analyzed. Considered are historical counterparts including the famous Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. The prospects are noted for the use of seismic pads providing the best protective properties and greater durability, comparable to the lifetime of the entire structure, as well as, most importantly, the protection of the structure and its foundation structures that remain unprotected using various types of seismic isolators.
